Kanye West opens up about his pornography addiction

Rapper Kanye West has a “full-on pornography addiction”.

The ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker says his addiction to watching porn began when he found a Playboy magazine at the age of five, admitting finding that has affected “every choice” in his life.

He said: “Like for me Playboy was my gateway into full-on pornography addiction. My dad had a Playboy left out at age five and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life.

“From age five til now, having to kick the habit and it just presents itself in the open like it’s ok and I stand up and say, ‘No, it’s not ok.’”

And the 42-year-old singer – who has North, six, Saint, three, Chicago, 21 months, and Psalm, five months, with his wife Kim Kardashian West – also has a sex addiction, which he admitted came about following the death of his mother Donda in 2007. West, who married Kim Kardashian West in 2014, continued, adding that he wasn’t ‘just addicted to sex’ but also to inspire.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, he added: “I think when people have been addicted to something like, if you ask somebody that’s a drug addict it’s like you say, ‘Are you still addicted?’ Well yeah, you turn it off actually. It’s like, with God I’ve been able to beat things that had a full control of me. You know that Playboy that I found when I was five-years-old was written all over the moment when I was at the MTV awards with the Timberlands, the Balmain jeans before people was rocking Balmain jeans, and the Hennessy bottle. It’s like that was such a script out of a rockstar’s life. My mom had passed a year before and I said some people drown themselves in drugs. And I drowned myself in my addiction [to sex].”

Discussing the making of his latest album Jesus Is King, West said that he asked people working on the album not to have sex before marriage.

During their conversation, the pair also discussed everything from West’s dreams of becoming President of the US and his political beliefs to his relationship with his family and his feud with Drake.
